This was a real shock to the system. We visited having pre booked a couple of weeks ago and were very dismayed as soon as we walked into the bar. Three dogs were lying on the floor infront of the bar (not a good start). The carpet in the bar area , well, they were absolutely filthy - a combination... More

My favourite words at the moment are, when the all seeing customers, and this is a daily occurrence, open the front door and walk in and the first thing they say is ‘it’s a pub’ before anything else. I laugh and say ‘what are we supposed to be?’. The Fox Inn is a Cotswold Countryside Riverside Inn, with seven four... More

The hotel advertises the fact they have had a huge refurbishment, this is evident in the accommodation but sadly the bar does not live up to this. The advertised 50 seat restaurant is very well maintained but cold on Saturday evening. We were asked on our arival if we could come later in the evening for dinner, say 8:00 pm... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review for us. I apologise that 'the attention to detail' was not up to scratch, and I agree that it is the minor details that can make or break a stay. I have taken your comments on board and will discuss them with my team in due course. You... More

My wife and I stayed here with friends, another couple, ostensibly to celebrate my birthday but really as an excuse just to get away for a few days. First things first, the weather was brilliant - wall to wall sunshine and clear frosty throughout our stay, sandwiched between murk and rain before and after it - so I'm bound to... More

Hi Matthew, We all certainly enjoyed your visit and I am glad you did too. The 70s playlist certainly did bring a blast from the past! I am glad you loved Chester too; he is an endearing soul! Our selection of beers is certainly worth a sample, brewed not 10 miles away. It could not get more local if we... More

My girlfriend booked this for Valentine's weekend for us and I wasn't disappointed. We arrived on the Sunday and were greeted by two ladies behind the bar who checked us in and we were shown to our room overlooking the River Windrush, it was the bridal suite and it was very comfortable and spacious room with open beams and high...

I am thrilled to hear that you loved our Moules Mariniere; it is a new addition to the menu and I am glad that it can compete with the best of them! We source all of our products from local, high quality vendors and feel passionate about serving wholesome, locally produced food. I agree that the bar does need a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during January 2015. If you are looking for a typical old English style inn then this is a good place to start. It's setting by the river Windrush is perfect. I would love to return in the Summer when the season is in full bloom as I imagine it would be delightful. We arrived to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review The Fox Inn. It is nice to know when our locally sourced products and home made food are appreciated. I am so glad that you got the opportunity to meet our locals, who I have no doubt imparted some of their wisdom to you! It'll be a shame when the summer arrives... More

We had a great time at the Fox Inn. Paul the landlord and the girls behind the bar were very friendly and welcoming, as was Chester the dog. Our room was very pretty with a very comfortable bed, a large bathroom and lashings of hot water - perfect after a days walking. The breakfast was excellent & in view of... More

Good little B&B a stones throw of Burford. Good full English breakfast. We eat in the pub both nights and we had great food. The staff were friendly and efficient. Fishing in the river Windrush next to the pub was a success too!

We have just returned for spending a relaxing and enjoyable 2 night break at The Fox Inn. The Inn is a 'proper country pub' in a delightful location, just how we like it with good food, good real ales, warm fire and a nice, comfortable room to sleep in - what more do you want (reading some of the reviews...

I am delighted to read that you had such an enjoyable stay with us. The mix of locals and visitors really make the Fox Inn a special place.

We at The Fox did ask for this review to be removed as it is factually incorrect, however they have not. We would like to put our side of the story across; 1) The lady had been repaid before this review appeared on the internet. 2) Our rooms ARE tested by The Tourist Board and are 4 Star quality. 3)...

We stayed at The Fox Inn for two nights. It's in a lovely location and the Inn is a very lovely looking building. It was our family's first short holiday (myself, my partner and our 4 month old baby daughter) so we were really looking forward to it. We weren't greeted in a welcoming way when we entered the premises.... More

Thank you for your observations and I, as the landlord, always try to take on board criticisms e.g. lime scale on the shower heads is inexcusable. However I would like to address some of the points that I feel are unfair. 1) On our literature it states the check in is after 2pm because we are an inn with rooms... More
